Forward pair in BT Sport Dream Team
Thursday, May 18, 2017
Courtney Lawes and Louis Picamoles have capped sensational individual seasons by being named in BT Sport's Dream Team.
The Saints duo were included in the line-up at last night's Premiership Rugby Awards in London, Picamoles also among the nominees for Aviva Premiership Player of the Season having scooped a supporters' and players' double a week ago at the Saints awards.
For Lawes, meanwhile, it was the latest highlight in a season that has seen the second row forward win the Six Nations with England, a nomination for his country's player of the year and also be included in the British and Irish Lions touring party for New Zealand this summer.
